Our Blog / Penney is an artist and designer living in Accra, Ghana.

Hey, I have been blogging for a whole year! To celebrate this milestone, I am doing a giveaway. That’s right, post a comment on my blog in the next week if you would like to be considered for the book Cloth Dolls for Textile Artists by Ray Slater. This book is eye candy with beautiful photographs and simple patterns to get one started in dollmaking or just learn new fabric techniques. I will contact the winner for address information.

  1. Congrats on your blogiversary! I know that’s not a real word. I might not have as much time as I used to for art but I still love some eye candy! It gets the creative juices rolling.

  2. I love your blog. I know how hard it is to keep one going. I have only been doing mine for a few days, and finding the time is not easy. So Congratulations on making it a full year. I really enjoued reading what I have and will have to come back and read more.


  3. Great blog, I love the mosaic idea. I did one with my granders on a huge red clay pot, we even put marbles that belonged to their Dad ….. Great fun !

  4. Congratulations on your first year! And thank you for having this giveaway. 🙂
    My library has this book and I would love to add it to my personal reference shelf. 🙂

  5. Hi Penney!

    I have this book so I can testify it’s very good. It was great working with you on the RRR. Even though you are busy, keep those creative juices working! May I add your blog to mine? Sue McF.

  6. Hi Penney,
    It is so neat hearing from you. I didnt know you had a blog. You are really staying busy with all the various things you have been experimenting with. Good For you. Ithaca Doll Artists will be having a workshop in a few weeks. Peggy Wilson from Canada is coming down to teach a few classes. Wish you could be here with us. The club misses you. donna
